Motorworks Brewing Company of Bradenton, like many Tampa area craft breweries, is celebrating Halloween by giving people a reason to come out and show off their costumes and festive spirit. But there is more than just a Halloween party here, as the brewery is also having a bottle release for two of their beers.
Pinglehead Brewing Company from the Orange Park area of Jacksonville has recently announced that their Halloween party this year will be called Phobia Fest. Phobia Fest, as it sounds, will not be for the faint of heart (although some family activities will be included) and will bring together artists, paranormal experts, and beer geeks for a day out of the ordinary. With all that will be happening, Pinglehead is planning to make Phobia Fest an annual tradition.
Barley Mow Brewing Company and Florida Beer Company are teaming up to present Freaky Firkins at Barley Mow this evening, October 31st from 7pm until midnight:
